Subject: A Classic Victorian Relic
As a medical anthropologist, I am very grateful for the presence of this type of material in the Archive, my sincere thanks to whomever is responsible. Clearly this is not a reliable analysis of the risks and benefits of circumcision, but it is invaluable to creating an accurate history of the practice from the perspective of the present day. This text is important primary data, helpful for showing the means by which American medical professionals introduced a procedure on the basis of moral, rather than medical values. Take it with a great big grain of salt if you're not accustomed to Victorian medical writing; the five stars is for the value of this writing in historical context, not for the content itself.
